Giugiaro Mustang Concept (Part III)
J. Mays, VP of Design for Ford Motor Company walks us through the Giugiaro
Mustang Concept unveiled at
the 2006 LA Auto Show. Classic cues get a new twist with the rear emblem
and taillights, while the automated Lambo-doors are completely new and
well, just plain badass.
2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has
unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for
TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max
action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original
Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based
Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design
Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor
and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre
behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours
project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those
that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said.
"We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd
Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to
styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the
April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take
body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design
Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version,
which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are
limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry
is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on
bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to
interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also
drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and
clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further,"
he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an
industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the
wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other
cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it
further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor
as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but
still brutal and tough."

Audi R8 Spyder massive crash

This is an unbelievable view of a car crash happening at a high rate of
speed. Please drive carefully!
In 2011 while on the Bullrun rally I witnessed a massive accident unfold
right in front of me. The driver of the Audi R8 Spyder was changing lanes
and did not see the Mercedes SL55 next to him and made contact with the car
at a high rate of speed. Once he made contact with the Mercedes the R8
bounced off and lost control causing him to slam into the back of a Honda.
Both the Audi and the Honda entered the fast lane where the car I was
riding in was traveling and we came extremely close to being tangled up in
the accident as well.
The Mercedes that was involved in the accident was owned by Ice T and he
pulled over to check the damage to his car and was able to continue
driving. The cause of the accident according to the police report was a
blown out tire and the Audi R8 was a total write off.
